Hilary Swank - Swank's Latest Movie Goes Straight To Dvd
HILARY SWANK has suffered another movie flop - her latest project THE RESIDENT is going straight to DVD.
The double Oscar-winner suffered a box office disaster with 2009's Amelia, her movie about missing pilot Amelia Earhart, which grossed just over $19 million (£12.7 million) worldwide - less than half its $40 million (£26.7 million) production budget.
Conviction, about a woman's fight to free her brother from prison, won Swank a nomination at the upcoming Screen Actors Guild awards, but was given a limited release in the U.S. in October (10) and has only made just under $7 million (£4.7 million).
And now movie bosses have decided her new thriller, The Resident, won't be given a theatrical release in America. The film, which co-stars Christopher Lee and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, tells the story of a pretty young doctor who fears she is being stalked after moving into a new apartment. It will be given a home release in America, while there are still plans to open The Resident in cinemas in Britain, according to the Huffington Post.
